Property description

Welcome to our 'Great Lake Escape'. This four season home offers exceptional panoramic views from most areas inside as well as outside on it's wrap around deck and expansive 450 ft of lake shore. 'Escape' today's fast-paced lifestyle or if you seek adventure, you can boat, ski, hunt, hike, fish, explore caves/and or casinos. The lakescape offers family friendly lake frontage that kids and adults are sure to enjoy. There's over an acre of yard, spacious wrap around decks and triple docks, allowing ample opportunities for outdoor fun. Location on a near point lot and idle zone of the lake keeps both street and lake traffic at a minimum. While there are many local attractions and nearby recreational opportunities to enjoy, guests comment most about amazing views of soaring bald eagles, blue herons, deer and wild turkeys; the relaxing sound of the horses hoofs clopping as they pull an Amish buggy across the causeway, the brilliance of the stars at night, and most of all---the perfect peace and indescribable quiet. From fishing to swimming to evening campfires, this is a place you will want to escape to time and time again.

NOTE: We have just purchased this property, which has been a vacation rental since 2011. Because the purchase was so recent, we have not had time to accumulate reviews yet. However, reviews of the property under the previous ownership are available, from us, upon request and they will give you information about what others enjoyed regarding the property, the area and the local attractions, as well as the cleanliness and condition of the property. The rental will be continuing just as it was before the change of ownership---same furnishings, same prices, same amenities, same housekeeping staff and same standard of excellence in cleanliness and service.
